I am pretty much in love with avocados. I literally eat them every day and have them incorporated into my meals in any way possible. The great part about this food obsession is that avocados are so healthy for you! They provide essential nutrients and are a healthy fat that you should add to your diet. I am so excited to share this Avocado Boat recipe with you because it is super healthy, super easy to make, and can be eaten as a snack or a side dish!
This recipe is from Rachael Ray who is really such a great chef, and has so many amazing cookbooks out. These avocado boats are not only healthy but can be great for entertaining too. You can put a bunch of avocado boats on a platter and make a great appetizer out of them! My favorite thing about this recipe is that I won’t feel guilty after eating them because they are so healthy!
O 3 ripe avocados
O 1 Lemon
O Several drops of hot sauce
O Extra-virgin Olive Oil (for drizzling)
O 2 small plum tomatoes
O 2 scallions
O Cut into and all around the pit of each avocado, down to the pits. Twist the avocados and separate them. Whack the corner of your knife into each pit and remove it.
O Using a large spoon, scoop out each avocado half and arrange them on a plate. Dress the avocados with lemon juice, a few drops of hot sauce and a drizzle of olive oil.
O Combine the tomatoes and scallions and season with salt. Fill the avocados with plum tomatoes and serve.
I am drooling just writing about this recipe. Nothing is better than avocados lightly seasoned with salt and olive oil. I can literally eat that right out of the fruit itself! (Yes, an avocado is actually a fruit despite how we use it in the kitchen.) This recipe is great for an energizing snack at 3 in the afternoon when you need that little pick-me-up.
These avocado boats are delicious and also so healthy for you, so you can’t go wrong here! These are great for a quick weeknight side dish and won’t leave you feeling bloated afterwards. So when you’re in a rut on a Tuesday night, make some healthy avocado boats and bring a new healthy recipe into your kitchen!
